29. A Fantastic Lecture on Depression

I am involved with a discussion group on the NAMI website (National Alliance on Mental Illness). Someone from the group posted a website with Stanford’s Dr. Sapolsky  giving a 52-minute lecture on depression that is one of the most complete and integrated descriptions of depression that I’ve ever seen from the body and soul sides (he does not bring in the spirit). He posits that depression is as real of a biological disease as diabetes…and also covers the components of psychological, stress, genetics, hormones, medical conditions, and more that have an impact on depression. Knowledge leads to understanding and understanding leads to healing. Here is the link to the lecture: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NOAgplgTxfc. I highly recommend you take it in.

About Patrick Day

triumphoverdepression.org This blog is my ministry to support those who are depressed, in gratefulness for my having overcome major depression. Read "About Patrick Day" just to the right of "home" on the top of the blog site to find out more particulars about me. I retired from a career in higher education, where I served as Dean of Instruction, and promptly moved into a life of purposelessness and despair for five years, finally coming out on the other side. I am now an author, a business and life coach, a writer of this blog, and a volunteer for various organizations. What I write about in this blog is not hypothetical comments on depression. I have been there, felt the horrible pain, had my life disrupted, and experienced everything that I write about. I pray that I may be a blessing to you.
